Sponge Boat Experiment

Young children enjoy learning about how tings work.

By participating in science activities, they are learning important critical thinking and observation skills.

These activities also promote their inherent sense of curiosity about the world.

For this activity we experimented with sinking and floating.

Using sponges and sails (constructed with toothpicks and paper), we created boats, and then placed them in water to observe whether they would sink or float.
